Olympics: Britain's press hails 'our finest hour'
LONDON (AFP) - Delirious British newspapers on Sunday hailed the country's greatest ever day at the Olympics, with heptathlete Jessica Ennis featuring as the poster girl on all the front pages.
Red, white and blue were the colours splashed all over the host nation's press as it went into a patriotic frenzy over the six gold medals the British team won on Saturday, including three in athletics.
The Sun tabloid called the gold medallists "The Six Pack", with the headline next to a picture of Ennis showing what it called her "washboard stomach".
"Our finest Olympic hour" was the headline in The Sunday Times, which featured a special souvenir cover wrap consisting of a giant photograph of a beaming Ennis with her arms raised in triumph.
